She's Not There

She's Not There by PJ Parrish (a pseudonym for sisters Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols) is a story about fleeing a past that will not let go.

Amelia wakes up in the hospital with no idea who she is or why she is in the hospital. She can remember the name Brody, but doesn't know if it is hers. Amelia has bruising that could be consistent with a car accident. A man in a pick up truck dropped her off in the emergency room and left.

Feelings come back before actual memories. She knows she is not safe where she is. When a man claiming to be her husband comes to her room, she pretends to be asleep. She fears him and/or a man with dark hair. It is all confused.

Amelia flees the hospital wearing a dress, hospital slippers and her diamond wedding ring. Her first need is clothing. Then she must come up with a plan to get far away.

Unsure of who to trust or where to go, Amelia leaves Florida to put distance between herself and whoever is following her. She is still not sure what really happened to her, but feels unsafe. She will keep moving while trying to regain her memory and find answers.

Parrish has written a fast-paced, suspenseful novel with a strong lead character. Even with amnesia, Amelia is a force with which to be reckoned. This is a great read!
